BOONE, Iowa—Boone Public Works Director John Rouse says heavy rains earlier this month caused quite a bit of damage below the street surface at 8th and Benton Streets in Boone. Rouse says he knew earlier there was a smaller problem that would be addressed with the on going sanitary sewer project, but heavy rains this month changed the situation. He says the storm sewer needs to be repaired right away, which will mean some travel limitations at the busy intersection. Rouse says the work should be completed and traffic returned to normal on Saturday.
